Yes, you often have to go out on a limb to get the fruit of your dreams, but don’t get so caught up in the chase that you miss the opportunity to grab it while having your feet firmly planted on the ground.

This helps to lower your stress level —

even if something isn’t perfect, right now Spirit is saying to grab what is being offered to you.

There may be reasons beyond your current ken for why this opportunity is the right one for you now.

It’s a good way to blast through blocks

If you’ve been feeling blocked in one or more areas, sometimes part of what you need is just to get some momentum going, to start rolling, even if the direction seems a little off-course from where you want to end up.  It’s ok!  Life is made up of many course re-directions.  It’s called tacking in sailing, to merge two metaphors.  The wind is pushing one direction, you want to go another, so you use the push of the wind against your sail to make a zig-zag line to get where you want to be.  Takes longer, but it works, and that’s just the nature of sailing.

Things are shifting in the world, very quickly.  Even if you used to be a perfectionist, and even if you were damn good at being a perfectionist, this may be just the right time for you to at least let it get a bit soft around the edges.

Use the opportunities Spirit brings your way, even if you don’t have to obtain them by climbing a mountain to reach the top of the tree.

It’s totally ok to let things flow now.  In fact, it may be dang necessary.  So, let yourself practice receiving easily, taking the good that comes your way without questioning it’s perfection, and look to appreciate the good about it.  Even if it’s not perfect now, it may become perfect for you for the time you have it.
